Missouri Biodiesel Mass Transit Demonstration

The Biodiesel demonstration project will be carried out with participation of the Missouri Soybean Association, the National Biodiesel Board, Metro St. Louis, MO and the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority. Transit Authorities will operate transit buses using biodiesel fuel over a one-year period during which data on bus operating characteristics will be collected. The overall goal of this project is to facilitate biodiesel use by urban transit agencies. The program is designed to address four tasks: (1) long-term durability engine tests; (2) implementation of "field use" of B20 transit vehicles for a period of one year; (3) identification of methods to reduce logistic and transportation costs associated with the use of biodiesel by transit agencies; and (4) identification of policies or regulations that can be met utilizing biodiesel.
